Rue Horoscopes: February


We may not be experts in astrology or the moon’s position, but we do know style alignment. And in forecasting the next month, here’s what’s in store for you.

What’s life without a little mystery? This month, experiment with wearing sultry underpinnings beneath your everyday uniform and revel in knowing something the world doesn’t – and in the extra boost of confidence that inevitably follows.

Spring is in the air (well, according to Punxsutawney Phil), so that means it’s time to start thinking Pantone® colors, eye-catching prints, and everything lace (just don’t take the plunge until the snow clears).

Warmer days are looming (and so is a packed social calendar). The best plan of attack? Start shopping the sale racks for winter steals and the fresh spring collections for a personally curated look that transitions without missing a beat – or a credit card payment.

Last spring was all about pleats and peplum, but this year? Quit playing it safe and go for a more daring trend (crop top, anyone?) – you might like what you discover.

The last-minute party invite: we all secretly love the drama, but how to get event-ready? Touch up your makeup with whatever’s on hand (mascara can double as eyeliner), let your hair down (literally, then give it a tousle, too), and get ready to schmooze.

Counteract any wayward emotions this month with the secret recipe that cures all: one venting session, two new statement necklaces (two-for-one deals totally count), and a batch of these three-ingredient brownies that are mostly Nutella. Repeat as needed.

Acknowledgement for your hard work is always appreciated – but you know what’s better? The view of a perfectly organized closet filled with all the favorite springtime pieces you’ve been missing all winter long.

Rumor has it it’s healthy to express yourself, so what are you waiting for? Snag that screaming-yellow hobo you’ve had your eye on and start communicating.

Now is not the time to be lazy. Add an accent wall to the bedroom (like, today), rock a powerfully printed jean in public, and wrap that hostess gift you’ve been harboring in the closet. Ready, set, go.

It’s practically a fact that if you put positivity out there, you get it right back. And what’s more positive than an impromptu vacation to a sun-drenched beach? Exactly.

The fashion stars are aligning, and that can only mean one thing: NYFW. Being the social creature you are, it’s only natural that you drape yourself in a fur vest, don pointy-toe pumps, and throw a party for all 54 runway shows.

Your newly discovered enthusiasm is inspiring to everyone around you – particularly your best friend, since you convinced her she just had to have those Missoni pumps with matching… everything.

Catch up on last month’s style forecast, and never miss a fashion beat.
